A lightly polished agate stone with great colour and distinctive banding.
Agate is a microcrystalline variety of the mineral quartz which means its crystals are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Most but not all agates are recognised by their distinctive concentric bands. Although this mineral can be exceptionally colourful it also occurs in shades of black, white and grey.
In the Middle Ages agate was believed to cure insomnia and bring sweet dreams. Today its healing properties are associated with calmness, strength, building self-confidence and healing of the heart. It can be used to help combat negativity and heal anger and is particularly useful for dealing with the pain that follows a difficult breakup.
Being quite a hard stone agate won't scratch easily but it's brittle so if knocked or dropped will certainly break.
This colourful agate was carefully chosen by the team at Stone Mania. An eye-catching and exceptionally tactile piece that you'll love having as part of your collection.
